Commonwealth critzen can vote in the UK for a European Parliament

I just found something very strange, Commonwealth citizen can vote for a European Parliament as long as you having Visa in UK (Student, Working Visa, High Skill Migrant or other).

Unfortunate, you might a bit late because the coming European Parliament vote which is 4th June 2009. Anyway, just register first, so you have a change for next election.

Who can register to vote?

You can register to vote if you are:

* 16 years old or over and
* a British citizen
* or an Irish, qualifying Commonwealth or European Union citizen who is resident in the UK

If you are 16 or 17, you can only register if you will be 18 within the lifetime of the electoral register. You cannot vote until you are 18.

Below is a full list of Commonwealth and European Union countries. If you are a citizen of one of these countries, and resident in the UK, you are eligible to register to vote in UK elections. To qualify, Commonwealth citizens must be resident in the UK and either have leave to remain in the UK or not require such leave. The definition of a 'Commonwealth citizen' includes citizens of British Crown Dependencies and British Overseas Territories.
